It's time for another La-La's Weekly Wednesday Challenge! This week our theme was chosen by 1LuvnMama and is "Nestabilities Shaped Card" - the shape of your card should be the shape of whatever Nestabilities you choose.
I used the Curved Rectangles Mega Nestabilities (love this shape!) and here's what I came up with:
I used Princess Lala and some old papers from Imaginisce.
I stamped Lala, then stamped over her with the frame stamp (Papertrey Ink) and let dry. I colored her in, but because I tend to do short choppy strokes when I color hair, I noticed that I went out of the lines quite a bit. So then I cut out just her head and put it aside. I stamped Lala and the frame again, colored Lala's dress and neck (and a little of her face and hair to keep it from being stark white under the popped up head), then cut just outside the line of the inner frame. I stamped the frame again on the dotted paper and used the matching Nestie to cut it out. I glued the cut out frame portion over the dotted frame, and then used a foam booster to attach the extra head. Finally, I stamped, colored and glittered, then cut out an extra crown and popped it up with tiny bits of cardstock.
Finishing touches - I sewed the strip of ribbon to the tiara paper, glittered all around the edges, added a sentiment (Papertrey) and pearls then glued the entire thing to my card base. When I'm making these types of shaped cards I always like to cut an entire separate panel for the front to keep the shape whole. When you cut along the fold to make a shaped card, you usually get a weird flat edge at the fold that I don't care for, so I just glue the full die cut over the folded card and the shape is perfect! (Hope that made sense!)
